Stay safe, or: Turn turtle

and a Christian to Muslim as well.
Is it simply understood
that we *all* are screwed?
Is that why most men stay in their shells?

    1. I’m not posing hypotheticals here, Muri – these religions have doctrines that include hell for non-believers.

      I like your version more, of course.
